With only two games left on their elongated road trip, the Golden State Warriors are looking for an elusive road win as they face the Cleveland Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena. The Warriors have simply not got it done thus far on the trip, posting a 1-4 record against a cast of rather sub-par teams, although Cleveland is probably the most sub-par team in the league.
Coming off of a gut-wrenching overtime loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday, the Warriors are looking to bounce back, and in a big way. In their last meeting with the Cavs in January, the Warriors got the win 116-98 at Oracle Arena, but it should prove to be a different matchup this time. With recent wins over the Knicks and most memorably the Lakers, Cleveland has proved that they can compete with the big boys. And with the addition of veteran Baron Davis the Cavs added a vocal leader who can fill up the scoreboard quickly (although he's no LeBron), and along with Antawn Jamison and Anderson Varejao, the Cavs are a team that can beat any team on any night. Look for Monta Ellis to have himself a big game, who usually responds the most when adversity sets in.
Hopefully the W's can get themselves focused and tally one in the win column in Cleveland. Tipoff is set for 4:00 PT and will be televised on CSN Bay Area and broadcast on KNBR 1050.
